Camping Recipe - Make Ahead Egg Bake

Camping Recipe - Grilled Rainbow Trout

Camping Recipe - Hamburger Foil Dinners
A camping recipe from Rosemary. This recipe is wonderful because the cleanup is little. This was always one of our favorites when I was a kid because mom always just cut up the potatoes and onions and we put it together ourselves.

Camping Recipe - Vegetable Potjie
A camping recipe from Nigel from Botswana, Africa. This recipe is a favorite for the second or third night out in the bush. The root vegetables keep well so that they can make a very filling meal after several days camping. The best part - you can kick around the coals and tell stories while waiting for the food to cook.

Camping Recipe - Pudgie Pies

A camping recipe from Ann. We frequently make this recipe over our campfire; it's great on a chilly night in Maine!

Our three kids love this recipe.

Camping Recipe - Peach Raspberry Cobbler
A camping recipe from Tony. A simple Dutch oven dessert.

Camping Recipe - Scram Burgers

Camping Recipe - Bryan's Dutch Oven Stew
Bryan's Dutch Oven Stew - a camping recipe from Bryan. A hearty one-pot meal. If you like dumplings, you can add a can of bicuits to the top and let cook for 15 minutes longer.

Camping Recipe - Chicken and Rice Continental
A camping recipe from Kelly. I modified this recipe from one I found many years ago. My family all love it. It's a great way to use leftover chicken, and it comes together very quickly. If you use fresh green beans, the cooking time would increase accordingly.

Camping Recipe - Marshmallow Surprise
A camping recipe from Amy. Absolutely delicious. Enjoy!

Camping Recipe - Hobo Stew
A camping recipe from Valerie. When I made this, I used a 3-quart stainless steel pot over a campfire.
